A.G. Schneiderman Highlights Local Impacts Of Trump Environmental Budget Cuts

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today highlighted the local impacts of President Trump’s proposed cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget, in a letter to Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

The cuts would cause direct, immediate, and lasting harm to New Yorkers’ public health and environment — and in the letter, Attorney General Schneiderman makes clear that he will not hesitate to take action to protect New Yorkers if the EPA fails to meet its legal obligations to ensure a clean, safe, and healthy environment.
